The Bethesda Blog points to Making a Dragon Sandwich: The Sound of Skyrim, a new feature on the audio in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda's imminent RPG sequel. This includes a podcast and a trailer on recording the Jeremy Soule-composed soundtrack (which is is now available for preorder) and the game's voice acting. The trailer includes anecdotes about composing and recording a song in dragon language and how they are responding to the complaints about how many NPCs in Oblivion shared the same voices by employing 70+ actors for over 110 roles, which Todd Howard notes is "a lot more than we've ever had." We also hear from a couple of those voice actors, Joan Allen and Christopher Plummer.
Yeah, it's pretty cool Max and Joan are in there, with 60+ other voice actors. A huge relief, it will make it MUCH easier to forgive bugs this time.
The limited voices in Oblivion were just excruciatingly painful, even NOW I can't seem to go an play it. Thought about trying the game with all the voices turned off and just reading my way. Then I couldn't hear the NPCs I want to hear like Saerileth and Viconia.
